Purchased all three ICON CD's.  Every song on ICON I is great.  "Let Me Go", "I Stand Alone", "Please Change Your Mind", "God Walks with Us", "Spread Your Wings"....brilliant, brilliant songs.

ICON II has the brilliant "Rubicon", "Tears of Joy", "Reflections of My Life", "To Catch a Thief" and "The Hanging Tree" and others.

ICON III has "Raven", "Destiny", "Peace In Our Time", "Don't Go Out Tonight", "Twice the Man I Was" and the incredibly beautiful "My Life is in Your Hands". The others are excellent too.

I just can't comprehend the amount of brilliant work John has put forth just in the last 10 years. There is no other artist alive that has put the quality of music out that John in the last 10, 20, 33 years.

That's what we all here think, but hey, why not expressing it again from time to time [smile].

I forgot about the amazing "Never Thought I'd See You Again", which could be a number one on Adult Contemporary Charts here in the US.

The reality is that since 1980, John has outshone McCartney, Springsteen, Joel, Elton, Justin Hayward, Pete Townshend, Jagger, Plant/Page, Bono, Jackson Browne, Tyler, Phil Collins, Bowie, Petty, Waters, Van Morrison and others.  His body of work outshines all of them as a songwriter and overall musician.  This is my humble opinion.  I've listened to all their music.
